Valesca, Bohdana & Vladimir

Because Siberian tigers are very rare and even almost extinct in the wild, Stichting Leeuw would like the tigers to participate in a conservation programme.

Valesca

Species: Siberian tiger
Born: 2012
Comes from: German animal park
Living arrangement: with Kuma
Family: sister of Bohdana and Vladimir

Valesca came to Stichting Leeuw in 2013, together with her brother Vladimir and her sister Bohdana, from an animal park in Germany.
Valesca is a very playful tigress, who prefers the outside. She loves to play in her pond, where she collects her toys. She tends to hide when it gets too busy with people; she keeps a close eye on things and will occasionally give someone a fright.
These triplets, as well as Siberian tiger Kuma, were welcomed at Stichting Leeuw to eventually be moved to Russia, to contribute to conservation of the species. Some of these tigers will actually be part of this conservation project.

Bohdana

Species: Siberian tiger
Born: 2012
Comes from: German animal park
Living arrangement: alone
Family: sister of Valesca and Vladimir

Bohdana came to Stichting Leeuw in 2013, together with her brother Vladimir and her sister Valesca, from an animal park in Germany.
Bohdana is a gregarious tigress who often interacts with her neighbours; lie together, play and run alongside the fence. Bohdana loves her cabin, where she often ‘hides’.
These triplets, as well as Siberian tiger Kuma, were welcomed at Stichting Leeuw to eventually be moved to Russia, to contribute to conservation of the species. Some of these tigers will actually be part of this conservation project.

Vladimir

Species: Siberian tiger
Born: 2012
Comes from: German animal park
Living arrangement: alone
Family: brother of Bohdana and Valesca

Vladimir came to Stichting Leeuw in 2013, together with his sisters Bohdana and Valesca, from an animal park in Germany.
Vladimir is currently the biggest tiger at Stichting Leeuw. He is an uncastrated Siberian male, fully grown now.
He likes his peace and quiet but is also very playful! He plays in his pond with all kinds of toys. He doesn’t like hot weather and prefers to stay out of the sun.
These triplets, as well as Siberian tiger Kuma, were welcomed at Stichting Leeuw to eventually be moved to Russia, to contribute to conservation of the species. Some of these tigers will actually be part of this conservation project.
